9 Day Athens/Peloponnese Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello. My wife and I (both 60) are planning our first trip to Greece in Oct 2017. We have 9 days total (before heading to the Cyclades), of which the first day will be traveling to Athens from Rome, arriving at 5:30pm. Our plan was to stay in Athens that night, rather than trying to drive to Nafplio in the evening. We will be renting a car.

We are veteran travelers - we love spectacular scenery and we love to eat.

Day 2 - Drive to Nafplio - stop in Corinth and Mycenae on the way. Stay in Nafplio
Day 3 - Stay in Nafplio - visit Epidavros
Day 4 - drive to Mani Peninsula - stop in Sparta/Mystras on the way. Stay in Mani
Day 5 - stay in Mani
Day 6 - drive to Monemvasia. Stay in Monemvasia
Day 7 - drive back to Athens
Day 8 - Athens
Day 9 - Athens
Day 10 - leave for the Cyclades (14 days)

My first question is this - in a choice between two days in Mani or two days in Monemvasia, any suggestions?

And my second question is - are we short changing either Athens or Nafplio by adding Mani to the itinerary?

Thanks in advance for your help.
